    Actually, I think it is simply "buy low, sell high"

    I won't buy anything to flip that doesn't fit my collection in case it doesn't sell unless I have a home for it prior to purchase.

    It used to be phone calls but in the last couple years texting & phone pics have pre sold many things before I even reached for my wallet to purchase them.

    I think it is turning over inventory quickly at a profit.

    WAIT Even better, should be having two or more collectors with unlimited money who will buy anything you offer them to at whatever the price you say! :)

    In the pre-slab era it was: rip em, dip em, flip em, and ship em.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    Make more than you spend, keep positive cash flow at all times..

    That's all very nice, but I think the real secret of the coin business is to have a lot of money to begin with.
